I have a pretty significant overbite but it doesn’t hurt my teeth or jaw. Do I still need to worry about it?
Even though you aren’t experiencing any discomfort or issues with your overbite right now, it could lead to problems in the future.
When your teeth are misaligned it can lead to premature wear of the enamel, tooth loss, gum disease, bone disease, and other issues. When your teeth are misaligned there is also the risk you may miss a buildup of bacteria, which can lead to bigger health problems including heart disease.
It’s easier to brush and floss your teeth when they are properly aligned, which means there is a lower risk of you developing a buildup of plaque and bacteria!
Misaligned teeth can also lead to jaw stress and pain.
Our St. Vital and Garden City dental clinics both offer Invisalign, clear aligners that work
throughout the day to guide your teeth into place. We recommend that you schedule an appointment at either of Winnipeg dental offices to see how Invisalign can help improve your smile!
